- A Graffiti-Free Building Façade Will Help You Attract New Customers
- Removing Graffiti Can Help Reduce Crime
- Your Paint is Part of Your Building’s Structure
- You Can Reduce Your Long-Term Costs
In a perfect world, customers wouldn’t judge a book by its cover, or, in this case, your business by its exterior. Unfortunately, that is not the world we live in. A person looking for a new business to work with is more likely to choose a neat, attractive, graffiti-free building than one that is covered with scrawling letters and animations. If your business relies at all on foot traffic then this is doubly important.
Believe it or not, small signs of crime can lead to additional crimes. Think about it like this: If there is a building with a broken window and one that does not have a broken window, which building do you think vandals are more likely to vandalize? Studies have shown that it is the building with a broken window. The same theory holds for graffiti – if there is some on your building then it may attract other criminals to mark up your building as they assume that the building is poorly monitored and safe to work on.
You may not have ever thought about this, but the exterior paint on your building is made specifically to protect edifices. This means that adding spray paint can weaken your building’s exterior layer of protection against the elements. The longer the graffiti is left on your building, the deeper it gets into the subsurface, and the more damage will be done to the material underneath it. In short, remove graffiti as soon as possible to prevent damaging your building.
The fact of the matter is that if you leave the graffiti without removing it or treating it, you could end up with more costs in the long term. It could reduce your property value, impact sales prices, and give the general impression that your property is worth less than it is. Remember that the sooner you get rid of the graffiti, the easier it is to do so. If you let it set, it will get harder and more expensive to remove.
